SuperSoldiers For God

This article is about the new robot soldiers (basically bomb-disposal robots fitted with guns) that are going to be deployed in Iraq. This is scary not just because it is a well known fact that an army of robot soldiers will immediately try to put all humans into little pods and hook our minds up to a simulated reality matrix, but also because I'd rather have a human behind the gun.

See, when the gov't decides to send troops against innocent people like, I don't know, protestors in Ohio or Tianamen, I'd like there to be a chance for somebody in the army to think "hey, maybe I shouldn't shoot these people." Robots never think that. They just shoot whatever hippie or pro-democracy protestor you point them at.

Where is Sarah Connor when we need her?
